Southern Israel has endured rocket and missile attacks for a number of years. Thousands of frightened children have spent hours in bomb shelters terrified by the sounds of rockets overhead; their anxious parents wondering when they will be able to venture out of the safe room. At the end of October we are walking Yam L’Yam together, from Tiberias to the Mediterranean, over 4 days, raising money for those in Sderot that need it the most. We are self-funding our participation so that every penny raised goes to those at The Emunah Sarah Ronson Child & Family Therapy Centre.
The Emunah centre was established in 2007, to provide therapeutic services to residents of Sderot and the vicinity. Constant attacks by rockets and mortar shells in addition to people having just 15 seconds to reach shelter means this community is constantly under stress, heightened by the proximity of Sderot to Gaza. Over the years, the Ronson Centre has become an extremely effective and highly respected service in the region. The needs and demand for services has grown exponentially and the Centre is now an authority on the treatment of PTSD, but in desperate need of expansion to cope with demand.
Emunah's counsellors and therapists are highly trained to care for those suffering from PTSD, extreme anxiety and depression caused by the trauma of living with the threat of terror on a daily basis. The centre also provides support for dysfunctional and vulnerable families, dealing with issues such as sexual abuse, domestic violence, incest and teenage delinquency.
Emunah has specialist counsellors for the many children of Sderot who have never known a time in their lives without fear – fear of tunnels, terrorists, stabbings, rockets, fire-kites and projectiles. Emunah staff work around the clock to ensure that the children and adults of Sderot receive the practical and emotional support that they need. Please remember that not all injuries are visible – Emunah is there at all times to help those in desperate need.
Help us help these people. Show your support by sponsoring us on this challenge, every penny raised will go directly to Emunah.
EMUNAH CAN ONLY DO THIS WITH YOUR HELP
